06/21/2012, In May this year, we wrote to you about the Air Force’s F-22 Raptor that encountered a series of problems, particularly the jet’s air system that allegedly doesn’t give enough oxygen to its pilots. The report sparked a controversy following the reported incidents where pilots felt hypoxia-like symptoms, with some rumored to have declined taking assignments to fly the jet. Now, a new report sheds a new light into the […]
03/23/2011, ZTE has decided to make use of the soon-to-be AT&T baby, T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ service by rolling out a couple of wireless devices – with the first being the Rocket 3.0 USB modem which will be released later this spring. As for the other model, it is known as the 4G Mobile Hotspot, where it will be able to share its Wi-Fi connection for up to five devices simultaneously. ZTE […]
03/22/2011, Over the weekend, Boeing’s latest jumbo jet, the 747-8 took to the skies for its first ever flight. It left Everett, Washington; accompanied by two Lockheed T-33 chase planes and landed at Boeing Field, Seattle after travelling in the skies for 4 hours and 25 minutes. The 747-8 is Boeing’s biggest creation (to date) and it has a wing span of 224 feet and 7 inches. But with a maximum […]

The project is supervised by DARPA and is called the SolarEagle, which will be an unmanned aircraft that will begin its first flight in 2014, serving as a sensor and communications platform for the military and could potentially turn into cheaper communications and reconnaissance satellites.

11/19/2009, The street-legal Frictionator Ford F650 is no ordinary Ford as it comes equipped with a General Electric J85 Jet Engine, making it the fastest street legal jet truck in the world – or so it is self-proclaimed in that manner, as the afterburner does invalidates that claim somewhat. Don’t think a seatbelt and airbags would make me feel safe in this zipping across the ground at top speed though.
11/11/2009, T-Mobile has started to ship its webConnect Jet modem and T-Mobile Tap handset, where the former will hook up to T-Mobile’s 3G network while offering access to T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi hotspots when the situation calls for it. Apart from that, it can be used as a flash drive thanks to the inclusion of a microSD memory card slot. The Jet USB modem will come with a $30 monthly plan that maxes […]
06/15/2009, You could call the Samsung Jet a Speedy Gonzales where cellphone processors are concerned, considering it clocks up a whopping 800MHz figure compared to other handsets in the market that have just made it past the 500MHz mark. Guess cellphone processors will soon catch up with netbooks in terms of the MHz count if the latter industry remains stagnant. The Samsung Jet boasts a pure Samsung six-sided Cube interface and […]
